Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, October 4, 1974 CANADA Has 4miracle man' Kissinger lost touch? JAPANESE TOUR CANADIAN TRADE FAIR IN TOKYO Canada puts on big push to crack Japan market TOKYO (CP) The biggest Canadian push in growing trade with Japan has been to boost sales of Canadian manufactured goods. Japan has snapped up Cana- dian raw resources to help feed its hungry industrial network but has ignored finished products turned out by Canadian factories. The trend, not surprising considering Japanese exper- tise and dependence on im- ported raw materials, has caused increasing concern in Ottawa. The Japanese bought billion in Canadian trade goods last year, all but 1.7 per cent in raw or semi-processed materials. More than 70 per cent of the billion in Cana- dian purchases from Japan was in finished products, Death probed GLEICHEN (CP) -RCMP Thursday were investigating the death Wednesday night of Andrew Franklin McHugh, 21, in a fire at his home about one mile south of this south- central Alberta community. direct from assembly lines employing Japanese workers. "We want to change this dis- proportionate said a Canadian trade department official. "You don't employ many people by scooping resources out of the ground and shipping them off raw." Japanese spokesmen, in- cluding Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka, are sym- pathetic but have a stock reply: Canadian manufac- tured goods must fit Japanese markets and be competitive. "If not, the sales won't De a Japanese foreign ministry spokesman told a delegation of visiting Cana- dian reporters recently. He said many trade restric- tions have been removed in re- cent years by liberalized Japanese trade laws. "The doors are open. Basic- ally it's up to you to come to us." Canada has made a dismal showing in attempts to sell finished wares in Japan. Trade Minister Alastair Gil- lespie launched one offensive last year by visiting Tokyo and expounding the virtues of Canadian furs, nuclear reac- tors, aircraft and anti- pollution equipment. Cana- dian trade fairs also have been held, but the efforts have made scarcely a dent in the Japanese market. "Frankly speaking, Cana- dian products have lagged behind Europe and the United States in said Yoshizane Iwasa, vice- president of the powerful Keidanren, largest business- men's organization in Japan. Canada is trying to attract Japanese investment that will build some of the plants neces- sary to increase the level of- manufactured exports. Japan does not object but officials, including Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka, say it will take time to change es- tablished trade patterns. "We want to co-operate be- cause good trade relations with Canada are said one Japanese official. "But the initiative has to come from the Canadian govern- ment and Canadian businessmen." NEXT: Japanese expect to increase investments in Canada. By CY FOX The Canadian Press Henry Kissinger will shortly be setting off on another of his celebrated trips of whirlwind diplomacy in the Middle East. But the question is being asked whether Kissinger now has lost his touch as a man ca- pable of working apparent miracles of peace-making. His new mission will therefore be plagued with doubts. The aura surrounding the dynamic U.S. secretary of state has been seriously tar- nished as a result of his alleg- ed failure to halt the Cyprus conflict, the charges levelled against him of complicity in the 1973 downfall of Chile's left-wing government and skepticism in the United States over his policy of detente with Russia. Congressional rebellions against Kissinger's policies are becoming more frequent. TIES UNDERMINED And its also suggested that recent tough talk by Washing- ton about the oil crisis and about the upsetting impact on Western economies of currency movements involv- ing portions of the huge Arab oil revenues has undermined the ties carefully woven by the secretary between the U.S. and the Arabs earlier this year. Thus Kissinger's trip will begin next week under a cloud, with the outlook worsened by reported Israeli dissatisfaction over U.S. proposals for international inspection of U.S.-equipped nuclear plants in both Israel and Egypt if Washington's promise of atomic reactors to the latter is fulfilled. The Israelis are well ad- vanced in their nuclear tech- nology and would have much more to lose from inspection than would the Egyptians with their fledgling projects. But the Israeli apprehension on this score hasn't discourag- ed intensive diplomatic maneuvering in the last days prior to the next Kissinger ex- pedition. For instance, Paris observers suggest that the controversial offer by Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin to sur- render part of the Israeli- occupied West Bank of the Jordan River may be partly aimed to please the U.S. as well as tempt King Hussein of Jordan. The Paris interpretation is that the Israelis are being pressured by Washington into such concessions as the necessary price for continued military and economic aid from the U.S. The Americans also may be trying to soften the Israelis with talk of a U.S. veto against United Nations recognition of the Palestine Liberation Organization Yet, despite the diplomatic case for important Israeli con- cessions on the West Bank and in other occupied territory, Rabin's reference to such possible backdowns has already aroused heated hostility in Israel: There, some elements, especially the religious par- ties, consider the West Bank the historical heartland of Israel which cannot be return- to the Arabs. Though Rabin was careful to broach the withdrawal idea as part of a possible bargain for a Jordanian guarantee of non-belligerence, he has since been obliged by the resulting furore to "clarify" his statements. He says, for instance, that part of any deal would be Arab acceptance of Israel's ex- istence and recognition of its sovereignty. He also asserts, however, that concessions must be offered to the Arabs as a way of testing their readiness for peace. In any case, his shaky gov- ernment can't surrender terri- tory to Jordan before holding new parliamentary elections. And Rabin's words about concessions are currently be- ing coupled with grim war- nings from him that any Egyp- tian or Syrian use of missiles against Israeli population centres would set off retalia- tion by Israel against Arab cities. Thus Kissinger will be jour- neying into a part of the world which remains decidedly tense when he renews his ef- forts to produce a lasting peace in the Middle East.
